Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Expect From My First Session?

In your first session I will be asking certain questions about you and your life.  This information will help me make an initial assessment of your situation.  Some examples of questions might be:

-Why did you seek therapy?

-What are your current symptoms?

-What is your current situation and personal history?

I encourage you to relax and try to be open with your answers and to ask questions.

Is my information confidential?

Yes! With two exceptions.  The first exception to confidentiality is if I discover that you intend to harm yourself or someone else.  In this situation, I am required by law to notify those in danger or your family so that harm to yourself is minimized.

The second exception to confidentiality is if I discover that you are participating in child or elder abuse or neglect.  In this situation, I am also mandated by law to report such findings.
